There is most likely no additional encryption on the Sync server. Everything is done on your computer before uploading that data via a secure connection

From https://wiki.mozilla.org/Labs/Weave/Crypto

The Weave passphrase is what makes this work. Remember, your browser knows your passwords and form history already: it's all decrypted, in your local memory. Using the passphrase, we encrypt your information on your local computer. We then use industry-standard SSL to relay the encrypted information to the server.

Ok thank you for taking the time to reply, you are both correct, it appears that AES256 is being used according to those links and encryption is carried out locally.
